Bora Bora - Resort Wardrobe







 

Bora Bora Resort Wardrobe





 Bora Bora - Aqua



 


This time last year I was lazing on a sunlounge with a cocktail in hand at the Intercontinetal Bora Bora, Tahiti. This year I was wishing I was back there! It was a trip 2 years in the making or should I save saving - so there was plenty of time to plan for a wardrobe. Having started my career as a fashion designer I had great pleasure in planning it down to the last perfect detail. Everything was new, carefully co-ordinated and picked to match the tropical surroundings. Even my poor husband didn't escape without a polo or two matching the turquoise coloured water! He's a good sport and goes along with most of it as long as I stick to the rule of no 'couple co-ordinated' outfits in public! I had fun putting this together and reliving it all - so you'll have to humour me!
  




 

Bora Bora - Tropical Brights



 


There were bikinis, kaftans and sundresses in aqua, turquoise and white. There were jewelled slides for poolside lounging and rope wedges for resort beach bars. There was strappy, silk dresses and heels for cocktail hour and candlelit dining. I threw in a splash of coral and pink for a bit of fun and to break up the blues and aquas. The funny thing is I ended up spending most of my time in my bikinis and really needed only half the stuff I packed! Lots of things just got the one outing so they are sitting there patiently waiting for another tropical holiday!
